During the closing years of the Bakumatsu era, an infamous assassin named Hitokiri Battousai roamed the land. Feared for his ruthless prowess, he dominated the country but mysteriously vanished during the height of the Japanese Revolution. A decade of tranquility has passed, yet the mere mention of Battousai instills fear in the hearts of former soldiers.

Unbeknownst to them, Battousai, now repentant for his violent past, has adopted the identity of Kenshin Himura. As a cheerful and determined wandering swordsman, he has sworn off killing and dedicates himself to safeguarding the vulnerable. One day, Kenshin encounters Kaoru Kamiya, whose kendo dojo is threatened by an imposter posing as Battousai. After Kenshin aids her, Kaoru invites him to stay at the dojo, prompting the reformed assassin to momentarily halt his travels.

Rurouni Kenshin: Meiji Kenkaku Romantan narrates Kenshin's journey as he endeavors to rescue those in need. However, with adversaries from both his past and the present emerging, will the transformed killer manage to uphold his newfound principles?
